Chateau de la Marjoliere - 2016
Sumptuously rich flavours of black cherry and leather in this Malbec from Cahors. The extended bottle ageing has mellowed the tannins to give a soft mouthfeel and long, lingering finish. A delicious partner for French stews and roasted vegetables.
80% Malbec, 20% Merlot. Aged purely in concrete vats in order to allow the wine to express its natural character and flavour as clearly and brightly as possible. Immediately the wine’s bouquet exudes freshness and ripeness in perfect harmony. Bold dark summer fruit, black cherry, briar and just a hint of capsicum to add lift and spice. Gentle, mellow tannins provide the necessary spine whilst also keeping the rich fruit in check. Cries out for meat, especially beef or game. Appetising and well balanced with a long finish.
